Bug#477681: ITP: iotop -- displays I/O usage information

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Paul Wise <pabs@debian.org>

* Package name    : iotop
  Version         : 20070930
  Upstream Author : Guillaume Chazarain <guichaz@yahoo.fr>
* URL             : http://guichaz.free.fr/misc/#iotop
* License         : GPL 2
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : simple top-like I/O monitor

iotop does for I/O usage what top(1) does for CPU usage. It watches I/O
usage information output by the Linux kernel (requires 2.6.20 or later)
and displays a table of current I/O usage by processes on the system.
Handy for answering the question "Why is my disk churning so much?".

psmisc/procps maintainer didn't want it there, moreutils probably isn't
the right place and a python dep probably wouldn't be wanted.
